What is the IUPAC name of trimethyl amine? Can we give it an IUPAC name or not? If not then does it mean the IUPAC naming system is limited?

Of course there's a IUPAC name for trimethyl amine. If IUPAC wouldn't be able to name such simple molecules it would be completely useless.

The systematic name is: N,N-Dimethylmethanamine

    $\begingroup$ @PrittBalagopal well, then let us just be consequent and delete such questions right away. Downvoting a correct answer is even worse than answering on a pretty effortless question. (and some language versions of wikipedia don't list IUPAC names...) $\endgroup$ – DSVA Jun 15 '17 at 11:54

    $\begingroup$ When you hover over the downvote button, it says: this post is not useful. I believe this is so, as it doesn't help the community by helping askers who cannot help themselves. We are closing the question. You were apparently quite quick to answer it. $\endgroup$ – Pritt says Reinstate Monica Jun 15 '17 at 12:37
